Consistency lacking
on varsity boys team

Observer Sports Writer
      It seems no one knows which Romeo High boys' varsity basketball team is going to show up these days, not even their coach.
       Will they be the team that showed up last Thursday night at East Detroit and won easily 62-38 or will they be the team that went down meekly 62-42 to Chippewa Valley on Tuesday at home?
       "We were two completely different teams again this week," said Romeo Coach Dale Teller. "We were not ready to play on Tuesday against CV. No sense of urgency, especially at defensive end. Against East Detroit it was just the opposite. We executed the game plan; moved the ball against an aggressive defense and thus had some good looks."
       Chippewa Valley, 64; Romeo, 42:
       At Romeo, Tuesday, Jan. 15, Antonio Compo finished with a team-high 12 points for the Bulldogs followed by Dwight Towne with eight, Drew Cushingberry with seven, Ryan Romer with six and Adam Davis with five.
       Romeo, 62, East Detroit, 38:
       Friday, Jan. 18, at East Detroit, Cushingberry and Jon Towne had 15 points each for Romeo, which improved to 1-2 in the MAC Red and 5-4 overall.
       Romer finished with eight, Davis had seven and Dwight Towne, Joe Curtis and Zach Rizo had four each.
       "We keep telling the team we can beat anyone on our schedule and can also lose to anyone on our schedule," said Teller. "We need to put together complete 32 minutes and could be a very good team. Our schedule is such we have no gimmies, however our guys know what needs to be done."
